    I worked at The Child Center of NY for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to go on trips with kids like Coney Island, if kids parents throw parties you get free food.

    Cons

    You have to take care of kids, escort them to bathroom if they are young, and some kids are really bad and difficult to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Do not favor employees over others, everyone should be on same level if they have the same position

    I worked at The Child Center of NY full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    fulfilling work, 1199 union benefits and good salary, great co-workers and dedicated therapists who care about the clients and are skilled.

    Cons

    Daily and weekly pressure to meet billing hours productivity numbers. The agency is focused on their financial struggles and the upper management/executive administration prioritize insurance billing over quality of care for clients and quality of work environment/morale for staff.

    I have been working at The Child Center of NY part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The kids are wonderful, staff are friendly, many staff outings that are fun

    Cons

    A lot of work for no pay, Bosses can be rude and come into work with attitudes sometimes,

    Advice to Management

    Whatever happens in your personal life, keep it at your house. You can't come in to work and have an attitude and take it out on your staff. Its not fair. Also follow your own advice and stop being on your phone.

    I worked at The Child Center of NY for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You become cultured, you meet different types of families, you learn how to tutor and help children. Family oriented, and the staff is about team work

    Cons

    Low pay, constant changes of supervisors, cut backs to the program, so you're never sure if you'll keep your job

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more of an opportunity to expand their knowledge of the program. That way they can take on more responsibility, and expand their resume.

  10. "Ok place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    Current Employee - Group Leader 

    I have been working at The Child Center of NY part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I think you can make the experience what you want it to be. If you're in school, this is a good position because it's flexible. You can be creative and learn new skills. It can teach you about yourself.

    Cons

    The pay isn't grade for the position, which requires a lot of work. Depending on your career goals, it is very limiting and may not be the best place to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more organized. While working with children a lot of unexpected things happen, but it's important to have a plan rather than a go with the flow attitude.
